    Netgear N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender

    Since recently moving to a bigger place, I realised that the Wi-Fi connection from my modem was not reaching my home office. So, I ventured out and purchased the Netgear N300. The Netgear N300 is a Wi-Fi Range Extender. It’s a simple device which can easily be plugged into a wall socket to extend your router’s wireless range further. It can also strengthen the connection speed by upto 300 Mbps. The easiest way to set it up with your router is to pair it automatically by using WPS connection. However, an ethernet cable can also be used as an alternative way for pairing both devices. The Netgear N300 Wi-Fi Range…

    How To Get A Career In Graphic Design

    I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer for quite a while now. Four years to be exact! It’s not been easy. In fact I’ve thought of giving up on it on multiple occasions. Not on the job itself but working freelance. However, my passion for creativity and the arts keep bringing me back. It’s a great career for someone who has a vivid imagination and is open to exploring different ideas during the design process. Plus there’s always the option of working full-time at an organisation with a group of designers. Graphic designers specialise in drawing, designing and developing ideas. This can be done by hand or a digital…

    Materials I Use For Hand Drawn Graphic Designs

    As a freelance graphic designer, I tend to do most of my work on the computer using specialist software. However, on some occasions, I prefer to plan and draw using paper and art materials. My go-to places to purchase art supplies are usually The Range, Hobbycraft and Paperchase. These stores tend to have a great range of products which last a while and are of superior quality. Recently, I shifted a few of my old items and rearranged my home office. So I was left with a lack of supplies for my hand drawn graphic designs. However, I was in for a surprise when Hobbycraft sent me a Mixed Media Art Set…

    Introducing My Gaming PC

    As most of you may know, I love gaming. It’s one of my favourite hobbies and something I’ve enjoyed since I was a child! I’ve been through many consoles and games, so if you’ve ever wanted to meet a gaming nerd – hello! Once I hit adulthood, my time for playing game consoles greatly reduced and my work hours increased. When I opted to go freelance with my graphic design business, I decided to sell my consoles alongside the games. I then purchased a PC which would accommodate my job role and be powerful enough to run games. And that’s where the Cyberpower gaming PC comes in! It comes in a…

    The DXRacer Formula Series Chair

    The DXRacer formula series chair is one of the best gaming chairs on the market. It comes in four different colours and retails for $229.99-$299.00 on the official website. But you can probably find it cheaper if you shop around! The chair requires manual assembly and comes with an instruction booklet to make the process easier. However I’d really prefer if it came in one piece. The chair itself has five leg points with wheels and a metal base to provide stability and long-term durability. There are also additional components, such as the gas spring for height adjustment, adjustable arm rests, ergonomically designed backrest, head rest pillow and tilt feature. These…
